Accordion Fold Card

This passed Wednesday was the second anniversary of my blog. I would like to thank all my followers for all the great comments and awards for the work I have done, which I enjoyed so very much!

For the latest on the health front:
First the dermatologist last week found nothing!
Wednesday at the Mayo I had blood work and a sonogram. I found that the blood work was all good and so was the results of the sonogram!  I am fine and can now jump up and down! Oh and go shopping!

I've been looking through the Just Cards 3D magazine in which my Becky's Magic Garden Card (Page 107) is plublished and I found a number of lovely cards with instructions to try out. I made my own versions of Just for You by Genice McNellie on Page 27.

This accordion fold card has so many creative applications.

For these cards I adhered the graduated size panels to the card, but straight on due to the stamped design style and also to accommodate the use of an A2 size envelope. I didn't use brads in my version of this card. My Asian stamps could stand on their own design wise.

Here are the cut used to make these cards, in case you don't have a copy of this magazine:

10 1/2" x 5" for base
  Scored at 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 4 1/4", 6" 8 1/4"
3 squares: 3 1/3", 2 3/4", 2 1/4"
3 squares: 3", 2 1/2", 2"
3 squares: 2 3/4", 2 1/4", 1 3/4"
Belly Band: 1 1/4" x 11"

Here are some pictures to give you an idea of what I did:

Accordion folded piece and three sizes of panels.
Floral stamped white panels.

Flowers are colored with Tombow markers and the panels glued in size order.

Finished open floral card.
Closed finished card.
Have fun designing your own accordion cards with this easy design.
